Magnificent Warriors is pretty cool. Michelle Yeoh rids a horse-drawn cart while whipping jerks. She also flies. Her main costume is a blue jumpsuit with a leather pilot’s jacket. You know, the ones with the big fur collars. She looks badass and has a few really stand-out fight sequences.
The final setpiece is a classic low-tech scenario of rebels versus militarized enemy, with some great stunts. It is humorous throughout. I enjoyed it. You might, too.
